Hello my question is witch carriers are the head carriers and witch are the daughter carriers/partnerships ??

Deutsche Telekom is the parent company of T-Mobile USA, and EE UK (T-Mobile UK+Orange UK), and other worldwide carriers.
Koodo Mobile is a subsidiary of Telus Mobility (Canada)
Fido is a subsidiary of Rogers Wireless (Canada)
Virgin Mobile Canada is a subsidiary of Bell Mobility
TracFone Wireless (U.S. provider) is an almost-fully owned subsidiary of América Móvil (Mexican company)
These are the ones I can think of right now.
Edit: here's one more. MetroPCS was acquired by T-Mobile USA.

Sprint has Boost Mobile.
Outside of that, all other "minor" carriers in the US are considered MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) which essentially means a separate company provides the brand service, but utilizes one of the Big 4's network for actual voice/text/data. Every MVNO I can think of is pay-as-you-go/prepaid/no-contract (at least in the US).
For instance, Virgin Mobile USA is a subsidiary of Virgin, but they utilize Sprint's network. Virgin Mobile USA would be considered the MVNO.
SimpleMobile uses TMobile's network (which I believe is owned by TMo but is suppose to sell it off to TracFone).
Cricket uses Sprint's network.
And I believe Straight Talk uses a all four of Verizon, Sprint, T-Mo and AT&T's networks.
Page Plus uses Verizon.
There are dozens more MVNO's in the US, but those are the main ones.
